The Carpet Bomb is a powerful air strike that can annihilate any insufficiently hardened structure within the area the size of a football field. It is comparable to the Stealth Bomber Attack, Fuel Air Bomb and Cruise Missile Strike.

The Carpet Bomb is extremely effective against infantry, vehicles and unhardened structures; hardened structures such as bunkers are not affected by this air strike.


Mercenaries 2: World in FlamesEdit

The Carpet Bomb is a massively devastating yet incredibly cheap air strike. This air strike consists of numerous unguided Mark 82 bombs being dropped by a B-2 over a large rectangular area. This bombing is literally several Bombing Runs by a single aircraft, it affects everything except bunkers and viaduct bridges (not including the Viaduct Bridge).

Carpet Bombs are available in the forms of passcodes that can be found near AN Target Buildings.


Real lifeEdit

The Carpet Bomb is based on the areal bombing tactic of Carpet Bombing.
